Publisher's Summary

Take his hand and follow him into the darkness . . .John Connolly, bestselling author of five brilliantly scary mystery novels, now turns his pen to the short story to give us a dozen chilling tales of the supernatural. In this macabre collection, echoing masters of the genre from M R James to Stephen King, Connolly delves into our darkest fears - lost lovers, missing children, subterranean creatures and predatory demons. Framing the collection are two substantial novellas - The Cancer Cowboy Rides charts the fatal progress of a modern-day grim reaper, while The Reflecting Eye is a haunted house tale with a twist and marks the return of private detective Charlie Parker, the troubled hero of Connolly's crime novels.

Nocturnes is a masterly volume to be read with the lights on - menace has never been so seductive…

    Fantastic to hear the voices of Angel and Louis. Not as I imagined, but better. Much More of this, please.

    "Stories 'Poor' with a capital P"

    This is a collection of short horror stories plus two novellas one of which featuring 'Charlie Parker' called ‘The Reflecting Eye’. A departure from the 'Charlie Parker’ series for John Connolly.
    The stories are:
    1. The Cancer Cowboy Rides
    2. Mr. Pettinger's Demon
    3. The Erkling
    4. The New Daughter
    5. The Ritual of Bones
    6. The Furnace Room
    7. The Underbury Witches
    8. The Inkpot Monkey
    9. The Shifting of the Sands
    10. Some Children Wander By Mistake
    11. Deep Dark Green
    12. Miss Froom, Vampire
    13. The Wakeford Abyss
    14. Nocturne
    15. The Reflecting Eye: A Charlie Parker Novella
    16. Mr. Gray's Folly
    17. The Cycle
    18. The Bridal Bed
    19. The Man From The Second Fifteen
    20. The Inn At Shillingford

    The shining light in this is the superb narrative by Jeff Harding as usual.

    As a fan of the ‘Charlie Parker’ series I wanted to read this Parker novella as the ‘Collector’ makes first appearance here.
    The first story ‘The Cancer Cowboy Rides’ was beyond poor and really had it not been for the Charlie Parker novella I would have stopped there.
    For a short story to work really interesting characters must shine through plus a gripping plot and perhaps a good twist. This is so difficult to do with few words and Connolly certainly did not achieve anywhere near this with poor short stories suitable for a junior school English homework task.
    If interesting plots characters or surprises are wished for don’t read here.
    The Charlie Parker novella is ok but does not aid the story of Parker Lewis Angel or The Collector.
    Not in any way recommended.
